There is something magical about visiting a library. Maybe it is the smell of books, or the overwhelming amount of books to choose from. Whatever it is, it is magical and best of all FREE! Imagine being able to experience a whole variety of books, genres and enter many different worlds for FREE!

Here at RPA we like to promote strong community links with our local Rushden library.

Visits to Rushden Library


EYFS Visit: October and December 2022

EYFS took a trip to Rushden library to find about local amenities and further develop a love for reading. During this visit children were able to read stories and sing along with Ron the reading rabbit. 

Year 2 Visit: March 2023

More recently Year 2 enjoyed a walk to Rushden library. During their visit year 2 pupils took part in a number of carousel activities linked to their most recent text, 'The Secret Garden'. The children had fun finding facts about the outdoors as well as searching for adjectives to describe a garden.
